They’re here. They’re near. Get used to it.
Mohamed Elrawi was arrested in Victorville, California on Monday evening after he chased his neighbor with a sword yelling, “I would die and kill for Allah.” Victorville is located in San Bernardino County.
There is not much detail at this time, but Victor Valley News reports that a warrant was issued to search Elrawi’s home, where detectives located a Koran and “several other items” which led them to believe the man is “radicalized.”
According to Sgt. Dave Burgess, “Sheriff’s Intelligence Division was notified of the investigation. Deputies began surveillance and at a little after midnight, Elrawi returned to his apartment and was quickly taken into custody without incident.”
